Business to business relationships for meeting planning
Marisa, Tell me more. What is your title with in the company??
How long has the company been in business?? Do you have a lawyer??
I am the owner of my company Cruise Planners. It is a franchise. I have been a part of Cruise Planners for almost a yr now, but the franchise has been around for 15yrs. I do not have a lawyer, we have have insurance that protects in the instance any errors or omissions.
This should be in writing - the other party should be looking to put it in writing as well to protect themselves. First, talk to them about what they are willing to do - they may not be willing. Then, what you agree on put in writing - keeps all parties happy and on the same page.1 of 1 people found this helpful
You can searc the web or similar agreements and modify them or there are several inexpensive layer sites that could help you put this together - but, do put it in writing - in business, nothing is personal - not even handshakes, verbal agreements (hard to prove) or relationships - business is business.

Is it better when partnering with another business to have a contract drawn or is a mutual understanding good enough? I own a travel agency and I want to gain some corporate clients that do off site meetings at sea, but I would like them to exclusively work with me. Would I be too forward in getting them to sign a contract stating that or should I just allow my work to speak for itself? The contract would state that they agree to only work with my agency for this meeting and that they have priority when they contact my office or send an email. They would be free to do business elsewhere after this meeting, but they will not be allowed to take my current planning ideas and give them to another agency nor have me do a lot of work and they take their business somewhere else. Should I maybe instead of a contract require a sizeable non refundable deposit that is applied to their reservation if they reserve the meeting, but pays the agency for work completed if they cancel? Which would your company find fair and feasible? Is anyone interested in doing thsi for their business and wants more information?
